Description

Learn the ABCs through cute, quirky mash-ups of animals and food, from Apricat to Zebrussels Sprout!

A is for Apricat is a fun, creative way for kids to learn their ABCs. Combining photos of fresh fruits and vegetables with cute illustrations of animals, illustrator Mauro Gatti has created a whole new kind of critter! The Apricat has the round, fuzzy body of a real apricot, with the adorable whiskers and face of a kitten. And the Turkale may have the head and neck of a turkey, but its body is fresh and green.

Each page features a letter with a new fruit or vegetable creature, paired with simple text to help kids learn the letter, the animal, and the food. A food facts page at the back explains the health benefits of each featured food with playful, kid-geared language.

Promoting healthy eating and imaginative thinking, this unique, lighthearted take on a basic concept will be enjoyed by kids and parents alike.

The Little Concepts series helps young readers learn their ABCs with adorable illustrations featuring unique animals, colors, languages, and even healthy foods. From A to Z, learning the alphabet (even in Spanish and French!) has never been so surprising and engaging.
